Jean Shepard Biography

Jean Shepard born Ollie Imogene Shepard was an American honky tonk singer-songwriter. She was born November 21, 1933, in Pauls Valley, Oklahoma. Jean spent most of her formative years in Visalia, CA, near Bakersfield.

She was one of ten children, who Jean says, were all musically inclined. Because music was such an important part of her life, it was only natural that in her early teens, she helped form and become the lead singer in an all-girl band called “The Melody Ranch Girls.” She played bass in the Melody Ranch Girls. The all-female band was formed in 1948.

Fate took a hand almost immediately. In one of her early performances with The Ranch Girls, Jean appeared with Hank Thompson. He was impressed enough with the talented newcomer to arrange introductions which ultimately would lead to Jean’s recording contract with Capitol Records.

For over 21 years Jean remained under contract to Capitol, selling countless millions of records, including Dear John Letter, Beautiful Lies, Many Happy Hangovers, Seven Lonely Days, Then He Touched Me, Satisfied Mind, and Second Fiddle.

In the early 70″s Jean moved to UA Records where she continued to have #1 records such as Slippin’ Away, Poor Sweet Baby, At The Time, and Tips Of My Fingers.
